Brown: Dons Playing

Current Dons boss Craig Brown says a combination of bad luck and injuries are to blame for the team's poor results, despite what he believes are excellent recent performances.

Pressure continues to mount on Brown following a ninth home blank against Motherwell last weekend leaves Aberdeen struggling to make the top six for a fourth successive year since Jimmy Calderwood was sacked.The Dons have won just twice in their last 11 SPL games - both against relegation certainties Dundee - and feebly limped out of the cup to Hibs.But Brown believes that despite this appalling run of form, the team is playing well.He said: "It would depress you if we were not playing well, but we're playing exceptionally well, and we're not conceding goals."We've lost our player of the year with a broken leg," he added, "we've lost a sparkling attacker for a transfer fee to Bournemouth. "We've had horrendous injuries, I don't think other teams have suffered as much as we have."I don't think looking at Aberdeen you can say the team is a failure."
